TTG Travel Awards 2016 honours travel trade's top players

THE 27th annual TTG Travel Awards 2016 saw 84 of the best and brightest in the Asia-Pacific travel trade awarded accolades in recognition of their contribution to the industry.


This year, 14 new winners emerged across various categories. Notable inaugural honoraries include Sebastien Bazin, CEO of AccorHotels, Brett Tollman, CEO of The Travel Corporation and Yaana Ventures. They are among TTG’s editorial’s handpicked recipients of the Travel Personality of the Year, Travel Entrepreneur of the Year and Most Sustainable Travel Company title respectively in the Outstanding Achievement Awards category. 


In the voting categories, Bangkok Airways (Best Regional Airline); One Farrer Hotel & Spa (Best New City Hotel); Korea MICE Bureau (Best Convention & Exhibition Bureau); Philippine Department of Tourism (Best NTO); and Khiri Travel (Best Travel Agency – Indochina) are some of the first time winners.


Meanwhile, Lufthansa, Emirates and AirAsia reclaimed their respective Best European Airline, Best Middle Eastern Airline and Best Asian Low-Cost Carrier titles. 


The 2016 awards also welcomed the return of past recipients Worldhotels (Best Hotel Rep Company), Pacto Indonesia (Best Travel Agency – Indonesia), Dynasty Travel (Best Travel Agency – Singapore), Vietravel (Best Travel Agency – Vietnam), Thailand (Destination of the Year), and Brand USA (Best Travel Marketing Effort). 


Six Senses Spa (Best Spa Operator) and Four Seasons Hotel Hong Kong (Best City Hotel – Hong Kong) returned to add new titles to their list of accolades, having respectively won Best Spa Group and Best Business Hotel previously. 


Veteran organisations such as Cathay Pacific Airways (Best North Asian Airline), Park Hotel Group (Best Regional Hotel Chain), Harbour Plaza Hotels & Resorts (Best Local Hotel Chain), Royal Plaza on Scotts (Best Independent Hotel), Resorts World at Sentosa (Best Integrated Resort) and Singapore (Best BT-MICE City) have also successfully defended their titles with consecutive wins. 


There are three new TTG Travel Hall of Fame inductees this year, namely Qatar Airways, Thai Airways International and Thailand Convention & Exhibition Bureau, placing them alongside the elite ranks of the travel trade. 


The TTG Travel of Fame represents the highest honour bestowed only on exceptional organisations that have achieved the feat of staying the best in their class for 10 consecutive years. 


The 27th Annual TTG Travel Awards 2016 Ceremony and Gala Dinner was held in Centara Grand at CentralWorld, Bangkok. The occasion coincides with the doublebill IT&CMA and CTW Asia-Pacific tradeshows every year.
